March Craft Night – Origami with a Twist

Our monthly craft night always focus on materials that are easily found in our wonderful “bucket” section.  Bucket is a treasure chest full of amazing materials and absolutely the best deal in our Reuse Center which is just cram packed with nothin’ but deals.

 .                     

 

 

 

 

 

This month, we focussed on the cool paper and tiny trinkets that are always available in bucket.  Our Crafter in Chief, Shiree Schade, come up with  beautiful folded stars, but then kicked it to the next level by adding just a bit more glitz.  What a wonderful gift topper, ornament, or just something pretty to hang in a window.    Sign up for  our Volunteer Newsletter email to find out about the next Craft Night.  Our Monthly Craft Material is always a surprise  so you never know what will be on tap for the night!

Spring Chicken Festival

On March 2, 2012, we participated at the Spring Chicken Festival.   The Festival was to provide awareness of the Austin Funky Chicken Coop Tour and of the Sustain Center.  It was a beautiful day and we spent our time sharing our vision of Austin Creative Reuse. We participated in the craft sessions and brought owls made from egg cartons for children to paint.
